Last week we looked at some lovely Thanksgiving decorations, just to get the party started. This week, let’s look at some side dishes, hopefully a little different from the norm.
We’ll start with something traditional but prepared with a twist: Savory Steamed Carrots with Tarragon from Savoring the Thyme. There is a mix of dried herbs along with the tarragon that will allow the carrots to stand up to whatever stuffing you prepare.
From the Purely Fall Magazine on Issuu.com is the oh so yummy looking Brussels Sprouts with Caramelized Beets & Onions (on page 28). I love the look of the darkly intense colors and wish I had a nice big warm plate of it right now.
From An Edible Mosaic is this wonderful dish of Roasted Butternut Squash with Apple, Onion and Thyme. The apple reduces the need for so much sugar and the Squash, Apple and Onion should make a great combination.
Also from an Edible Mosaic is this Kale Gratin. It would be nice to see something green (and better for you) on the table other than string beans!
This is an interesting looking Cheesy Mashed Potato Puff. From Kitchen Project, to me it looks like it was cooked in a muffin pan, but it calls for a 2 quart casserole dish. Whatever you cook it in, I’m sure it will be tasty!
From Siggy Spice is this pretty yummy looking Cranberry Mandarin Sauce. I have to confess that I enjoy the plain ol’ canned jellied cranberry sauce. But if I was going to spice it up, this is definitely a way I would go. The taste of the cranberries and mandarins would work very well together.From My Magic Recipe are these beautiful looking Butterflake Dinner Rolls. I would love to be able to produce something that looked so wonderful!
And one last bread just because it is so beautiful. Called Happy Bread by Foodiva’s Kitchen it’s based on a recipe that she Google translated from Greek! Look at this masterpiece. You put this baby on the table and nobody will be looking at the turkey!
Next week, desserts from Pinterest!
